How To Write IB Extended Essay Reflections

How To Write IB Extended Essay Reflections | Extended Essays (IB) | Scoop.it
As you already know, the new extended essay criteria include 6 marks for “Engagement.” These 6 marks are almost enough to bring you from a C to an A. I want to give a sense of what the rubric is asking for and how to show these things in your writing.
Tina Jameson's insight:
Some good advice here - please note that this is not an 'official' IB source - but could still help students navigate Criterion E: engagement with research focus and process.

About Google Scholar

About Google Scholar | Extended Essays (IB) | Scoop.it

Stand on the shoulders of giants.

Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.

Tina Jameson's insight:

Information for EE students: Search for valuable resources without having to wade through the commercial based sites.  As 'real' information is highly valued, you may find there are costs associated with viewing some material, however it is still a useful way of collating and assessing literature that you may wish to track through libraries where possible.

If you have not already discovered TROVE, then make yourself some time to have a look.  If you already have a research idea in mind, then take to opportunity to see the wide sources of information that may be out there.
